The filter media is responsible for removing dirt and debris from your pool. As it ages the media deteriorates and eventually reaches a point where it needs to be replaced. Replacing the media in your filter is considered routine maintenance and should be completed on a regular/scheduled basis.
Activated Filter Media
We recommend and use Activated Filter Media. AFM is the world’s best filter media and the manufacturers have the evidence to prove it. It is a fully bio-resistant filter media providing:
- Crystal clear water
- Healthy air with less chlorine smell
- Reduced operating costs
- Sustainable filtration for many years
Standard sand or glass filter media should be cleaned twice a year and changed every 5-7 years. Because biofilm does not grow on AFM, it doesn’t require cleaning plus you can expect AFM to last at least 10 years or even more!
Book in a filter media change with us during June or July 2021 and we will give you 1 hour of labour free!
All our standard terms of trade apply but we’ll give you one hour of labour absolutely free.
On average a standard media change will take between 2.5 to 3 hours.
We are taking bookings now for media changes so please get in contact if you would like your media changed to AFM.
